Initiator: The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design
Focus: Type design
The Sønderby type family was my graduation project. In typedesign an ever ongoing discussion is the personalities of typefaces. Inspired by Söderhavets Sweden Sans typeface I wanted to create a type family that conveyed a danish identity. Throughout the design proces I was very inspired by the danish typedesign tradition embodied in the works of Thorvald Bindesbøll, Knud V. Engelhardt, Gunnar Biilmann Petersen, Claus Achton Friis and Naur Klint.
